Maryland: The Top Motor Vehicle Enforcement State

Motor Vehicle EnforcementMotor vehicle enforcement along with truck inspections are an important part of vehicle and road safety across the nation. Without motor vehicle enforcement, truck drivers would have the ability to ignore safety codes and traffic laws, making the road dangerous. Recently, the American Transportation Research Institute released a report entitled “Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement- Top 10 High-Performance States.” The report ranks the states on a point system spanning over eleven main criteria areas. Maryland was proudly ranked number 1 in this report, while also ranking number 1 in the level of inspection intensity, a report made by Overdrive Magazine. Maryland received such a ranking from Overdrive because of their rate of inspection per lane-mile of interstate within their state borders. The Maryland inspection rate was three times that of the national average of state inspections.
